Have to quit job because I was denied a transfer due to a written warning?

by Scott
(Roswell, GA, USA)

I recently was approved for an out of state transfer from California to Atlanta GA. I have been working in GA for five months now but need to move back to California to be near my ill mother and to be with my fiance.


I was denied a transfer when I was issued a final written warning for attendance out of the blue. When I requested a transfer back, my employer states that its within our policy that we cannot process transfers to any employee under written or verbal warnings. I have been employed with this company four years with an outstanding repore and have never recieved any warnings in the past.

Is there anyway I would be eligable for unemployment in CA?




Scott,

I need to ask .. have you looked into whether you should be requesting FMLA due to your mother's illness?

And while you're at it .. since they are citing their company policy regarding transfers .. have you check the policy regarding progressive disciplines for attendance?

As what I researched, in the state of GA they do not offer paid family leave.

My employer states in there policy that they do not have a progressive discipline policy. The decision of which type of disciplinary action issued rest solely in managments discretion.

All though I can most likely take FMLA. I am not in the financal position to take leave without pay.

Bottom line I am forced to resign due to them not offering a transfer. The funny part is when I asked my manager for a timeframe of when this warning will expire and when I would be eligable for transfer again she couldnt answer.




Then no, I don't think it's reasonable to expect unemployment .. not even from California if you still have wages in your base there.
